Learn about traditional musical instruments at Stagakis Cretan Lyra Workshop, established in 1945. This family-run workshop makes high-quality lyras, favored by both amateur and professional musicians of local and international renown. Each instrument takes about a week to produce by hand, following the artist's specific requirements for tone and pitch. If you're looking for a personal, albeit rather expensive souvenir, consider purchasing a lyra, mandolin, bouzouki, or mandola. The store also sells disposable items, like strings and bows, as well as used musical instruments. Discover how to plan a Rethymnon trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

  • The VERY best place on Crete for seeing traditional instruments and how they make them.
  • The owner of the shop was so kind to my boyfriend, who plays guitar, and wanted to explore the bazooki! He took the time to chat with him and allowed him to play of their beautifully crafted instruments.
